about some of the important historical, literary and cultural science in the area. next we bring the story of the set in in 1939 >> 19395 african-americans were arrested at the alexandria city library as they tried to obtain a library card. the attorney general samuel tucker was beyond the set in which resulted in the creation of a separate library for its black residents. we traveled to the site of the original sin-in and for a place where the black library was built to meet today and african-american history uneasy come to tell the story of samuel tucker and the people that are arrested the day for the act to get a library card. estimate august 31st 5 african-american young men who were not allowed to use the library came in and each politely asked for a library card. they were denied, set down at separate tables and the staff just didn't know what to do with fat to get paid taxes, fall also walls but they are not able to take part in the things of the alexandria citizen was about to take part in. this is part of a program that the young local attorney had been working on for s
through cal so she can now teach science in your schools. i made it to foreman by straight dealing and producing quality work that commanded respect. that is my ethic. i think we will produce a quality agreement for you, a functional agreement for you and i think the advocates of local hire are afraid of that because they don't want to give us credit for anything. they want to be able to declare victory and they want bragging rights. that should not be the concern of this district. it should be what works for its students. thank you. >> good evening. i'm here for the same reason -- to formulate a pla that's best for san francisco. i think the disagreement or discussion is how we get there. i represent local 43, fire sprinkler unit. we long to the san francisco building trade and we feel that pla between san francisco unified school district can only come to fruition if that's done through the san francisco building trades because they represent all the building trades. and like the people before me, i just ask that you take that into account. thank you. >> good evening. m

as a political science professioner writer, on this right, co-hosted the show with me once or twice. he was somebody i called as a quote for pieces. i got to know him really well. he was so encouraging to me. he looked at me and said your future is in tv. you've got to make it work in tv. it was good to hear. i didn't know what it meant. it's not a direct straight line from here to here. the tv thing didn't start until recently. his encouragement stuck with me. unfortunately he passed away a few years ago. he died in the classroom doing what he loved. david is his name. i just had three years in new jersey. it was the funnest time in my life. i'm really excited about this new show. might be great. i hope it's great. might be the biggest disaster sin but we'll find out. there will be a lot of people i hope get to watch but i just wish david could have been one of them. i had a blast the last nine months. >> we're going to miss you. >> for the final time, martin bashir, take it away. >> i'm sorry. who are you? good afternoon, it's wednesday, march 20th. on this first day of spring, the pr
, about black members, members of the tea party. with us now the professor of political science at the university of washington and author of the upcoming book "change they can't believe in, the tea party and reactionary politics in america." thanks so much, christopher, for joining us. it seems to me that when a lot of us who work on this show and have watched this program we have made a real effort to show the face of the tea party. all the placards up there, the hitler mustaches, the black face, if you will, superimposed on the face of barack obama. these obvious racial things that keep popping up in the visuals. what does your study tell you about the nature of the racial peace here of the tea party? >> well, thanks for having me, chris. my study suggests that there is a strain of racism in the tea party going all of the way back to when it began in 2010. there's definitely a racist strain but it goes beyond racism, homophobia as well, chris. >> let's talk about how they fit together. >> sure. >> is it a resumption of the old south, the dreamy nostalgia you get in the old mo
. the journal "science translational medicine" published the findings today. the treatment is experimental and has only been used on five adult patients whose bodies resisted chemotherapy. the treatment genetically alters a patient's own immune cells to fight the cancer. one patient saw all traces of his leukemia disappear within eight days of treatment. and three of the five patients have now been in remission for five to 24 months. general motors announced a recall of 27,000 vehicles because of problems with their automatic transmissions. the recall affects the 2013 models of buick's full-size lacrosse cars and cadillac's s.r.x. crossover s.u.v. g.m. cited a software problem that could cause the transmission to shift to sport mode and increase the risk of a crash, although none have been reported. those are some of the day's major stories. now, back to jeff. >> brown: and we continue our focus on the middle east with a deeper look at the question of chemical weapons and their possible use in syria. i'm joined by leonard spector, deputy director of the monterey institute's center for nonp
need without any surprise fees. ♪ it's not rocket science. it's just common sense. from td ameritrade. >>> keeping them honest. the center for disease control said 1 in 50 children in the u.s. have some degree of autism. it's an attention-grabbing figure. last year, the same government agency, the cdc, put that number much lower at 1 in 88. at first this new number sounds like a huge increase. which led us to dig in and dig deeper and look closer at how the cdc arrived at the new number of 1 in 50. it turns out, it was through a phone survey of parents. the cdc didn't actually evaluate any children. they didn't look at a single medical record or any other documentation. they just called up parents and those parents who responded said ultimately -- came out to be 1 in 50. we're not suggesting these parents lied or misled the cdc, but the question is how accurate was this phone survey? and the cdc is, of course, a serious outfit, not prone to throw around faulty information. what are the facts? we're joined by sanjay gupta. sanjay, a year ago, everybody was shocked. the prevalence of au
, science, technology, the economy, but going with the president of israel and the prime minister to see a high-tech demonstration. one of which was a robot actually serving matzoh. so there were all sorts of demonstrations on medical advances. israel really has exploded with technology and science here and what the president was trying to say to the young people is, this is a model for the region. now make your democracy work by not being an occupying forceful. >> i thought that was one of the most effective parts of the president's speech. to say, take essentially, take all this negative energy and turn this into something positive. that israel is an economic hub. the palestinians are among the most educated populations in the worldful there is great potential here if these two opposing sides would actually work together. that's why he has been stressing economic development as a possibility. >> now a $40 billion a year mutual trade relationship that dennis ross helped nurture along. thank you, dennis, and i should say nbc middle east adviser in chicago, jeffrey goldberg here. we'll be
they said they wanted to give. libraries, exiewrpt labs, science labs, beautiful building. they're being sent to a school that is much, much older, not in good shape, and not really equipped to handle the children with special needs. >> announcer: let me ask you the same question i asked him about whether and to what extent chicago is failing its student today. where do you see the failure and where do you see the cost? >> i mean, i don't understand the-- what we're talking about when we're talking about fail. we have been failing poor and minority children across this country. it's not just chicago. it's everywhere. and the issue is we don't want to have honest conversations about poverty because doing these other things and focusing the conversation somewhere else allows people to not talk about the other issues. so in the poorer parts ofÑi tow, children have not had access to good things, and then all of a sudden, we're starting to see that happen. almost every single school that is on the bubble here, we've seen a lot of resources put in lately. but some, not so much at all. so the
to his last, which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense. from td ameritrade. >> it's wednesday, march 20th, the first day of spring. well, the season may change, but the same winds are blowing in washington. the white house continues to insist on maximum pain from sequester cuts. we're seeing more cuts used for political reasons instead of cutting back on things we don't need. speaking of that, more nonsense from senator harry reid indirectly linking the blast that killed seven marines in nevada to the automatic defense cuts. listen. >> it's just not appropriate, mr. president, that our military can't train and do the maintenance necessary. these men and women were training there at hawthorne, with the sequester it's going to cut the stuff back and i just, i just hope everyone understands sacrifices, sacrifices made by our military. they are significant. charles: and that's shameful. harrison ford of all people also sounding the alarm. the actor, oh, and pilot says, quote, accidents are going to happen when the f.a.a. closing air traffic controo towers. we'll play the sound fro
it's not rocket science. it's just common sense. from td ameritrade. >> well the dow is on track to end the week in the red overall, but still we have some winners this week. in fact the second best performer is coca-cola as a matter of fact. up by about 3% for the entire week. it did say that it is cutting 750 jobs in the united states. it is streamlining its business as they always put it. and the biggest winner on the dow for this week is hewlett-packard. hp up more than 3 1/2% for the week. the board over there approved a 10% dividend increase and did that yesterday. so that gives you an idea of some of the individual stocks that are doing well in the dow. we'll close in the green today. as i said for the week looks like we're still down as we wrap things up on the "countdown to the closing bell". the combination of david asman and shibani joshi. david: we like this combination you've been asleep past hour because it is 2:00 a.m. your time. >> viewers noticed i did sleep. david: good to have you here, shibani. sandra smith as we close out the day. apple for a second. slow com
